What is your go-to approach for depression counseling?

My go-to approach for treating depression is CBT. I find the best benefit in CBT because it helps clients understand how irrational thoughts negatively affect their mood.

What tools do you teach in depression counseling?

I teach the following tools in depression counseling: confronting irrational thoughts about things that happen in their lives, reframing things that happen in life, and developing new perspectives on things that happen in their lives to treat their depression.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in depression counseling?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in depression counseling when they have a more positive outlook on their situation.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement depression counseling?

Clients can supplement their time in depression counseling with becoming more physically active.

What should someone do to prepare for starting depression counseling?
